Turkish Estates: SMS Meerschaum Laughing Bacchus (with Case) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-653-6553

Before the utilization of briar, meerschaum was the preferred pipe-making material, its relative durability making it a popular alternative to clay. German for "sea foam", meerschaum is a porous substance that's easily pliable when wet and sturdy when dry. The material's malleability allows carvers to fashion a variety of unique shapes, from traditional Anglo-French standards to more detail-rich figural designs. In addition to smoking with a neutral flavor, the pale medium also develops a patina over time, darkening with vibrant browns, golds, and tans. This Laughing Bacchus figural by SMS showcases the quality craftsmanship that can be rendered from the unique medium, and it comes included with a custom-made, hard-shell case.
